We are delighted to announce the publication of a new Women’s Health Concern factsheet – Epilepsy, the menopause and HRT.

This comprehensive new resource, written by Professor Anne MacGregor in collaboration with the medical advisory council of the British Menopause Society, has been reviewed by the national UK charity Epilepsy Action.  It addresses several key questions for women, including:

Does epilepsy affect the menopause?

Does the menopause affect epilepsy?

Does HRT affect epilepsy?

Does HRT interact with my epilepsy medicines?

The factsheet is designed to provide women with information to help them understand the relationship between epilepsy, the menopause and HRT.  It does not replace professional medical advice and women should consult their healthcare professionals for personalised guidance and recommendations with regard to epilepsy and menopause management.
